      Getting kind of sick of Full Tilt and the horse manure turn cards.
      I know the limp here was weak and wrong to open but I was prepared to call a small raise. I knew I was winning after the flop and had to call down.

      Is this bad play or bad luck? I feel that it was a bad open limp and the rest is not my fault.

      Don't post results.
      It gives biased decisions.

      PF: fold. way to many people behind you and your OOP (Out Of Position) for the whole hand with a very marginal hand.

      Flop: bet more, around pot size, board is very drawy and we don't want anyon chasing the Flush or Straight.

      Turn: is fine I think

      River: check/call like you did.

      But your real problems are PF.

      hey hey, yup i know preflop was not technically sound
      based on the way the table was playing (few raises) i limped with the plan to call a raise of 4-5bb to play for a big flop. I wouldn't raise there because I don't think I call 10bb or something when someone bumps it behind me.

      Is it ever to justify limping here if you are card dead and believe you can get a cheap flop (which panned out)?

      No, like I said, T9s is a horrible hand to play OOP.
      You can play these hands IP. But UTG definietly idnt the place to do it.
      Don't start raising hands just because u feel u need to win a hand sometime soon and your card-dead. the cards and situations will come.

      you are right
      and limping was wrong anyway
      if i raise there the guy with trips would presumeably have left the hand
      so best choice: stay out
      second best: raise it if you are going to play it

      exactly.
      :)
      SH maybe you can raise with those kind of hands. but FR, there is just way to many hands that can call that will have you smashed.

      Hi,


      I won't go again over the preflop stuff, it's a raise for me but if you don't feel like raising it just pitch it.

      Postflop just pot the flop for protection.

      The turn 5 is a good card, it doesn't complete the obvious draws, makes sets less likely. It kills your two pairs again JJ+ but it's unlikely somebody is in there with those hands given the preflop action. When he raises he's repping basically 5x and maybe a good Tx or random bluffs if he's bad, i think calling is fine.

      River bet really looks like a milking bet but could also be an attempt at bluffing again or "valuebetting" Tx, so given the odds you probably have to call it.


      Hope it helps.
